Travelbook Poems

Travelbook is a journeying “into self as well as into the world” that follows “the sense of the curviform, or the yonic.” It takes the reader into the open-ended and recurrent experiences of beginnings, ends, and new beginnings in poems on growing up, leaving home, going against norms, identifying with the strange, and encountering mysteries, lovers, cities, selves, homes, death, and rebirth.
